Closing lid, idle laptop for few min , can't wake it


When I close the lid on my laptop, or when the laptop is idle for 5 or more min,
laptop become unresponsive. Lock screen is showed but with time different than actual ( I supose it shows time when screen goes black )

What can I do to fix that ?
It only happened when it is on battery ( as I saw now, suspend action is on sleep) maybe that is a problem ?


What I’d do in this case is set it to “Do Nothing” or “Turn off Display” when the lid is closed and also disable the screen-locking. But if you post your system specs e.g. inxi -Fayz people may be able to help fix the issue. :slight_smile:

Quite recent hardware; I was going to suggest trying a newer kernel but I see you’re using 5.9 (I didn’t know that was already released!) … maybe try 5.8 though & see if that makes any difference.

Otherwise I’d probably just disable those features if you don’t need them. Mine will turn the display off after a while when on battery but doesn’t activate the lock screen which has been problematic for me in the past (whether activated intentionally or via a timeout).

Hopefully someone more familiar with your new hardware will be able to assist?

No need, I use an inspiron from the 2012 and it works fine. Don’t understand why you want to install linux on such a capable laptop! Anyway, In xfce rise up the lid, wait a few seconds and you will see a flash of a mouse and sign of life. Don’t press the shutdown button, that will prompt it to fully shut down. Instead type in your password even if the screen is black. It will come to life.

One thing I have noticed that the laptop GETS HAWT when I shut down the lid and leave it in a desk, as It springs to life in the upper steps. My previous os, win7 went to sleep auto and kept the laptop cold. Maybe the not sleeping off despite the lid down confuses the os, and the following mentioned above happens. Try mine and see if that will work.

Why not to install Linux , hehe

It is free, fast, and a lot more. Yeah , last 2 weeks I switched back to Win10, but only because I need my full sound system , Bang and Olufsen 4 speakers. On linux I can not get more than 2 or 3

found the answer, g to power management/ right click on battery icon in bottom right corner, and click power management. From there search for sleep when lid closed, and apply.Boom. And brtza plz dont leave spam, this will cause you to be kicked out.
